Welcome to Forestry TA Application Portal
To facilitate the hiring process of the Teaching Assistant (TA), the Faculty of Forestry Teaching and Learning Support team developed an application portal which allows for:
Instructors to review their applicants
Students to apply to multiple courses for TA positions using a single account
Department admins to view student information needed for the hiring process
Important Information for TA Application
Once you have submitted your application, do NOT send an application twice or any updated resumes. You will only be contacted if you have been selected to be a TA. If you are selected as a successful candidate, you will receive an email with the details of your TA position. The University of British Columbia and the Faculty of Forestry hire on merit and dedication. We encourage qualified students applicants to apply.
Note: To apply to be a TA for the Faculty of Forestry, you must be a registered student at UBC Vancouver for the term(s) you are TAing (this applies to both Winter Terms and Summer Terms). The Teaching Assistant application portal is open to both graduate and undergraduate students.
